A resource of practical information and instruction through inspirational stories, offering opportunities for engaging dialogue, leadership development, and professional training.
The guest speakers—AIGA members and beyond—are all active practitioners in social impact design, gender equity, creative placemaking, government innovation, racial justice, healthcare access, and more. While sharing their approaches to design practice, they demonstrate how designers can develop solutions for complex societal issues.
Ever wondered if your gender is affecting your ability to progress professionally?
The statistics on the number of women in leadership roles in the design and technology industries are not good. Very few organizations have women in active leadership roles. And although more women graduate from higher education in creative industries than men, women still earn 20% less than men. So why are women so underrepresented as leaders?
AIGA Women Lead has teamed up with designer and sociologist Leyla Acaroglu of Disrupt Design to create the Gender Equity Toolkit. It’s a new set of resources including videos and a downloadable activity set that gives your creative team a secret weapon for busting through one of the leading causes of disparate access to leadership positions in the design field: implicit gender-related bias.
